How will our teams be formed for 2020/21?
Where possible, we will keep players together from Term 1 of 2020, although this decision is made on a case by case basis. We'll bring everyone together just before the end of term 3 (probably the afternoon of 24 September) so that we can best place you in a team and division you will enjoy and be challenged in. We are encouraging all coaches to arrange a training session during the holidays after term three finishes to get teams back together again.
Where can I find the draw?
All games are scheduled on the CricHQ scoring website. The schedule comes out during the week – WBOP has a policy of having winners play winners, losers v losers, to try to ensure even games. The best place to find the draw is by following this link: https://bopcricket.co.nz/fixtures-and-results/bay-of-plenty-cricket-association. You will then have to select Western Bay of Plenty and then the appropriate division that your team is in (eg "Division 2 Gold", or "Intermediate Reserve"). The draws are put online by Western Bay of Plenty Cricket Association's coordinator Don Warner, usually by Wednesday of each week.
Can I join after registration closes?
If you miss the registration dates please still contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to find a spot for your child. Our registration page is at https://mountjuniorcricket.co.nz/register
What is CricHQ?
CricHQ is both a scoring app and a website where statistics on every player, team and game are kept online.
NZC wants all players to be registered with CricHQ this season, and to have control of their own profiles. In the past, player profiles have been managed by clubs. Prior to the season we will send you an invitation to either claim your existing profile or, where necessary, create a new one.
If you are a scorer, you can download CricHQ for free from the Playstore (Android devices) or Appstore (for iPad/iPhone devices). You will then need to set up a CricHQ account for free at www.crichq.com, and request administrative rights for your team by emailing Don Warner at email@example.com, with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow a day or two for this process before your first game.
What about representative cricket teams?
Each year in term 4 the Western Bay of Plenty Cricket Association will nominate selectors for representative teams. Usually there will be a trial held for each year group starting from a combined year 4/5 age. Teams are selected for matches against neighbouring associations such as Hamilton, Waikato Valley, Gisborne, as well as to attend a 3-4 day North Island rep competition in Hawke's Bay during January. Find out more about these camps here. We will let coaches and teams know about the trials when we find out about them.
